Instructions for Short Writing Assignments
For the Writing Assignment, you are asked to select a social issue you would like to know more about. You may choose any social issue we have discussed so far this semester.
You are then asked to search for scholarly (i.e., peer reviewed, empirically based) articles to investigate different sociological issues, such as poverty, deviance, religion, family, education, etc. Please keep in mind that newspapers, Newsweek style magazines, or informational web pages such as Web MD or About.com are not considered scholarly. If you are unsure if an article is scholarly, please review the information found on the following web page, and/or ask me:
Use your critical thinking skills to examine the effectiveness of the information presented in the research. It is up to you to compare the different findings in the literature. In other words, you want to make sure you are comparing 2 to 4 research articles.
In research articles, the authors will generally talk about the theory or theories in which their studies are based. For the information in the articles you find, pay attention to what the authors are saying about the theories which provide the backdrop for the topic.
The final product should be a high quality, 4 to 5 pages minimum, not including the title, or reference pages. The paper must be typed, doubled-spaced (Times New Roman, 12-point font, one inch margins), and properly documented with section headings, in text citations, and references, using the APA style. The paper will be evaluated on organization, critical thinking, clarity of presentation, and the use of APA style.
